Track 1: Psychosonic Gray - All the rainy days and grey clouds of Portland made me move to Hawaii.
Hey looking down at all the people looking up wonder what I’m gonna do Hey looking back across the ocean feeling free of that commotion of another life and I say Hey make your way from that Psychosonic Gray, I say Hey make your way from that Psychosonic Gray Hey take the bus with all of us who have directions in our hands that lead the way Hey look ahead and don’t look back the future bright with shining light is where it’s at and I say Hey make your way from that Psychosonic Gray, I say Hey make your way from that Psychosonic Gray Too many people on the ground had no choice where they put down pick yourself up stay or go Live to fight another day life moves forward anyway exit Psychosonic Gray - Oh - exit Psychosonic Gray Hey make your way from that Psychosonic Gray, I say Hey make your way from that Psychosonic Gray
Track 2: All That You See – A dream romance
A soul that’s burning hot embrace with me Pull closer feel my love in memory Reflection in your eye by candlelight In darkness of the night I will be all you see Your water colored name drives me so insane Light up the night for me I will be all you see Hold on and don’t let go your shaking like a leaf This time I’m all you’ll know I will be all you see - I will be all you see – I will be all your see -
Track 3: On And Off Again – Sometimes the tumultuous relationships are the ones that burn the hottest.
Every time I look at you I stop right in my tracks and when I get too close to you anxiety attacks I made you see all red again and push me out the door You told me for the thousandth time don’t come back here no more - On And Off Again that’s the true sign of a very best friend Give me back my key that unlocks your front door I gotta make sweet love to you like a thousand times before Make your body glow for me a ruby in my eye Let me hold you close to me for comfort when you cry - On And Off Again that’s the true sign of a very best friend - On And Off Again that’s the true sign of a very best friend
Track 4: Sentimental State – When you first realize you’re in love - and the fear that someday it’ll slip away.
In my Sentimental State I fell under your spell a little late the consequences came on fast and now I feel euphoria at last Don’t take it away my Sentimental State don’t take it away it’s the only thing I can make Who knows where this is gonna go Guess you’re the only one who knows Will I have strength to carry on look to the distance when I’m gone Don’t take it away my Sentimental State don’t take it away it’s the only thing I can make don’t take my Sentimental State from me don’t take my Sentimental State away
Track 5: I L U – It’s so hard to tell someone that you love them for the fear of how they’ll react.
In the forest just the other day a bird explained to me just what to say I thought I had it all figured out He set me straight that’s what it’s all about Exponential soaked reality I feel I’m drowning underneath the sea In the trees a song for us to sing My feathered therapist on golden wings I L U So whatch-you gonna do about it -I L U So whatch-you gonna say I got to tell you what’s in my heart it keeps me up at night it’s tearing me apart but in the moment when I’m looking in your eyes I freeze up I can’t speak I don’t know why but I I L U So whatch-you gonna do about it - I L U So whatch-you gonna say - I L U So whatch-you gonna do about it - I L U So whatch-you gonna say I L U So whatch-you gonna do about it - I L U So whatch-you gonna say
Track 6: Let it Go – She can’t ever seem to let her guard down so she can fall in love.
Settled in her semi-secret life Never ending static streams of light To say that she’d be sorry is the understatement of the century The only way she’d ever know is break away the binds of lock and key Drifting clouds of dreams in silver skies Never know the answers till she tries She knows that she’d be sorry if she kept her secrets guarded so the only way to make her dreams come true - Let it go
Track 7: On the Wings -- In the 1800’s a woman who lives on the prairie in the middle of nowhere, dreaming of the day of if and when somehow, someone will come along and whisk her away to a new fantastic life.
Look on and long all your life now through fields of gold - On The Wings she flies heart and want in time through the haze that shines dream of dreams collide The future lives she’ll change Take pride in wanting more a wind to carry her to fields of gold - On The Wings she flies heart and want in time oh through the haze that shines dream of dreams collide
Track 8: The Universe Instrumental – The beautiful and constant changes of our universe

Track 1: Never Come Down - Skin on skin is where we begin your necklace swinging over me It’s a hazy vision that’s burned in my brain It’s everything I thought and now I’ll never be the same You flood my mind and I’m reminded all the time As I dropped all of my responsibilities To find my soul in a sea of rock & roll I’ll make my way to live on Once I got up I never could come down Once I got up I never never could come down There ain’t no way that we could ever live this way Cut more slack or it will die It takes the same strike a balance that remains Now as a stray man I must live on Once I got up I never could come down Once I got up I never never could come down Once I got up I never could come down Once I got up it all came crashing down
Track 2: Bring You Higher - Hear the winds of change howlin’ from my plane Step onto a land that was born into my veins Show you who I am a complicated man Burnin’ with desire to bring you ever higher - Leave you with my mark a long shot in the darkOnly you deserve the product of my nerves I won’t depend upon the man no feeding from his hand My love for you has brought me here to bring you ever higher- higher In this moment here and now hear the music play Free your mind and free your soul let me take you away It won’t matter where you go take me on your ride Let me stir what’s deep inside you and bring you everr higher- higher
Track 3: Cupids Arrow - Earth rotating I’m still waiting here Time relentless I’m so restless here As long as it takes as tension escalates I’ll play this waiting game As long as I’m awake I’ll feel myself breaking From cupids arrow through my heart As long as it takes as tension escalates I’ll play this waiting game As long as I’m awake I’ll feel myself bleeding From cupids arrow through my heart
Track 4: Blast Off - Strap me in a rocket ship flip the switch let it rip Blast me off into outer space to escape this human race Delivered to this planet by someone’s tragic mistake Oh - I’m so terrified (petrified) help me get back to where I’m from Morals absent and everyone’s armed All this violence to do me harm Beyond the stars I will find Peace and love with my own kind Blast me off set me free Send me to my galaxy back home
Track 5: Out of Sight Out of Mind - Turn turn the other way Wishful words that you would never say Now I’m gone to another place I believed in your promises The honest truth was left un-said Now I’m in trouble – big trouble Out of sight out of mind Only you for all of time I’m out of sight I’m out of mind It’s always been you Turn and don’t look back You’ll never know about my heart attack Because I’m gone – vanished without a trace I’m out of sight I’m out of mind Only you for all of time I’m out of sight I’m out of mind It’s always been you I’m out of sight I’m out of mind Only you for all of time I’m out of sight I’m out of mind It’s always been you I’m out of sight I’m out of mind Always you for all of time I’m out of sight I’m out of mind I vanished without a trace
Track 6: Rushing Waters - Oh sound and body move as one Part time lover on the run Saving grace to save your face The rushing waters wash all away Oh sound vibrations moving slow The room in back where the red light glows Bring you to your knees Beg and keep me please Oh sound and motion work as one Push me pull me just for fun Whisper while we lay The rushing waters wash all away
Track 7: Beside You - In the heat of the sun I lie beside you Through the rain that falls from the sky I lie beside you - ohh Saturated never faded I lie beside you All the names released into the sky I lie beside you Beneath our stone our flesh and bone I lie beside you Love surrounds us the angels found us I lie beside you - ohh
Track 8 My Army - Hammer down so my feet they skim the ground My heart it beats without a sound My dreams that spiral down In the night where my army fights Chaos reigns now that I’m insane Look right through me I’m the smoke that fills the air He stands by your door and sees me there I’m close to the line for me it’s perfectly fine I live on borrowed time the choice is ultimately mine In the night where my army fights The chaos reigns now that I’m insane Look right through me I’m the smoke that fills the air He stands by your door and sees me there In the night where my army fights Chaos reigns now that I’m insane Look right through me I’m your ghost in the air I’ll stand by your door and you’ll feel my presence there
Track 9: Forever True - I think I see how it’s supposed to be I can see all your colors shining through I think I know how this is supposed to go All your beautiful colors shining through So what am I to do remain forever true I think I should forget but if I could All your beautiful colors would fade to gray So what am I to do remain forever true Look up to a big blue sky Let the clouds pass on by Now all that’s left to do Remain forever true Remain forever true
Track 10: Like Superman - Act like Superman do the best I can Dreams of you won’t stop I wish I was next to you Fly fast through the sky lift a tractor high This ain’t no Sci Fi I wish I was next to you I’d tunnel underground with supersonic sound In a single bound I wish I was next to you Made of kryptonite I last all through the night Glowin’ in the dark I wish I was next to you Stop a speeding train dig this grovin’ thing I’d never be the same if I was next to you If I was next to you, if I was next to you

I truly poured my heart & soul into it, hense the title All of Me, Some of the songs are a bit edgy as they reflect difficult times in my life. Others are about hope and love. The infusion of psychedelic electronics create a unique musical texture .
Track 1: Wild and Free – All that there is – only the show biz travelling this lonely road on the runway the flash in my eyes of memories those days gone by so now that I know I’m better off if I go live to try another day it’s never quite the way it seems somebody wake me from this dream now I run wild and free I carry the love you left with me I’ll try to find my place among the stars and dream of your kiss until my end All that there is – only the show biz a song to take me to the end It’s never quite the way it seems somebody take me from this dream now I run wild and free I carry the love you left with me I’ll try to find my place among the stars and dream of your kiss until my end.

Track 3: Without You – I see the world through black and white then close my eyes super tight so I can’t see look at myself from the outside in never want to speak again so I won’t talk I can’t seem to hide those reflections from inside so I’ll take a magic pill to erase the way I feel I would trade my soul for one to gain control as I’m falling to the ground down, down - Without you I see the world through black and white my eyes glazed over but that’s alright with me hear your words so loud and clear turn up my voice so I can hear through all that flip I can’t seem to hide those reflections from inside so I’ll take a magic pill to erase the way I feel I will trade my soul for one to gain control as I’m falling to the ground down, down - Without you
Track 4: In Your Eyes – In your eyes all I can see is your love your love for me I am hypnotized by your green eyes and their love their love for me In the light of the night I feel your love all over me in the trance of our electric dance I am bleeding out in exaltation in your eyes all I can see is my dream that’s come for me through the mystery found by history now my dream has come to me
Track 5: A Million Pieces – In the morning when I wake my fingers tremble I start to quake outside my window all is gray I just want to get away from this place nothing seems to satisfy my lust for life think I know why look in the mirror all I see is the silhouette of a man that once was me I’m in a Million Pieces scattered all over the floor I’m in a Million Pieces not gonna live like this anymore got to change the way I’m wired galvanized dissolved and tired put my spirit on a shelf
Track 6: Silver Angel – Golden sun, shines the light on me. Shaded eyes, of a world that cannot see what’s inside, inside of me. A celebration, be my salvation. save the dying heart, of a sentry soldier who stands in the snow until you find me here. Silver Angel - I’ll always remember long after it’s all over your eyes will shine bright in eternal light. Silver Angel - there’s a song for all the ages with love on the pages but when will you find me, will you ever find me here. held back by the guard, the guard who stands at the gate the gate in the snow ice crystals that fall, fall as words, words of love that melt on the pages of our song. Silver Angel - I’ll always remember long after it’s all over improsioned hearts can’t keep us apart - oh Silver Angel - there’s a book to be written with love on its pages but when will you find me, will you ever find me here. Ice crystals that fall as words of love that melt on the pages of our song. Silver Angel - I’ll always remember long after it’s all over but first will you find me, will you ever find me here.
Track 7: A Wish – On a road to the sky I look up to see a wish come floating by so I leap up to catch it spin around through the air with the wind and the sunlight in your golden hair want to reach out to you on the wire through the air all the parachutes from my wish land everywhere when I reach out to talk to you shared the love shared the laughs all the colors of our rainbow couldn’t last as I tried to get to know you. and we ran so fast to the waterfall now I feel the love stream down my face I wish one day we’ll stand in the soft white sand with the sunlight in your golden hair
Track 8: What I Need – Oh, don’t cha know you are everything I can’t let you go. we are free, meant to be. you’re inside, inside of me. Oh, don’t cha know that I love you I love you so. you are everything that I could need for you, my heart will bleed.
Track 9: My Star – In my dream I have traveled far. to a land unknown to me.I carried hopes held high flying in the sky to pursue illusive love at last I saw you for the first time and felt the blood rush through my vein I looked into your eyes and I saw your disguise I felt our bridge begin to break. Where have you gone where is the one that I‘ve come to know I have traveled far searching for my star. Where has she gone. As the sun softly kissed you I’m suffering from culture shock we were lost in translation simply struggling to talk and on the third day a bright white light a graceful goddess dressed in black I could feel what you were gonna tell me your body screaming my defeat where have you gone. Where is the one that I‘ve come to know I have traveled far searching for my star. Where have you gone I cry out loud where is my star.
Track 10: Requiem – If I could return again someday and listen to the things they had to say would it make me sad to know they felt that way when I said goodbye that fateful day no one could ever know the reason I let go couldn’t stop the power of my heart or let the time just melt the thoughts away I could never never ever let it lie so all that there was left to do is die no one could ever know the reason I let go so long, farewell, goodbye I’m smiling down from the sky
